This week in the Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 145 we are being asked to write in response to the photo prompt selected by last month’s winner of the challenge, Diana Wallace Peach.. I have composed a double Etheree – The Moonlight Concerto

Double Etheree – The Moonlight Concerto

Shunned
and scorned
by others
the ugly troll
hid deep in the woods.
Despite his appearance
he had the sweetest nature.
His greatest gift was his music
that drew outcasts from the dark shadows
to listen beside the moonlit river.
Among them was a windblown poppy seed
that was enchanted by the sweet sounds.
As if by magic it unfurled
into a crimson flower
that swayed to the soft notes.
For the only time
in his sad life
the creature
felt true
joy.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
